Fall Light

Fall Light 5 7/8"x7" Oil on Paper $50

This piece is in a 10X10 Black Matt so that it will fit a standard size frame.

It's that time of the year when the intense colors disappear and all those beautiful blues and grey appear.  This painting is done on Arches Oil painting paper made specifically for oil paint.  It is lovely to paint on and makes it light for shipping.

Happy Thanksgiving to my friends south of the border.  I hope its a time of good visits and of course good food.

Blessings for a great day.

Blue , 9X6" Acrylic and Watercolor on Watercolor Paper $35

I am working on many paintings at the same time.  Some are very large 4 foot by 6 foot.
They take time so once in a while I think it is fun to take a break and do something a little more immediate.  I've done a group of tree paintings using a variety of mediums - acrylic, watercolor, pen and ink, and molding paste.  My intention had been to make them into small cold wax paintings but I was having fun doing these flowing trees and stuck with that.

They will frame very nicely into a standard 8X10 frame if they have a mat around them.  

I have a partner for this one posting tomorrow if you are wanting a pair.

Blessings for a great day.

Pear 8x8 oil on 1 1/2" gallery wrap canvas
Painted on the sides so that no frame is required.
Signed on the back.

I thought it would be good to go back to some of my all ways and see how my method and ways have changed.  This one was done almost exclusively with a palette knife.  It is oil and will take a bit of time to dry.

Blessings for a great day.

Art Card

Art Card

I have been on a great course.  iPad use for artists.  Quite the mind bender.  My poor brain hurt on the second day but got very excited on the third.  The technology was wonderful and I am trying to work out how I can use it in my art.

Decided to sit down and do a funny art card as something totally different.  I usually make a batch of christmas trees and christmas themed cards at this time of the year.

Blessings to all
